Changing keys - voice feminization training

Trans Care BC offers a free program for adults age 18 and up called Changing Keys. Changing Keys is an intensive speech and voice training program offered in a group format. It consists of a private speech and voice evaluation and the group therapy program itself. Some of the speech and voice parameters we work with include speaking pitch, vocal inflections, voice quality, vocal resonance and speech sound articulation. We discuss but do not work directly with other aspects of communication such as gestures, facial expressions, word choice, laughing, listening behaviours and turn taking in conversation.
